WASHINGTON, DC (PRWEB) June 11, 2015
FierceWireless today announced its annual “Fierce 15” list of the top privately held wireless companies of 2015. The winners this year reflect a broad cross-section of the hottest wireless startups that are innovating in network technology, mobile devices, services for carriers and more.
FierceWireless, an internationally recognized email newsletter and online publication covering the wireless industry, evaluated numerous privately-held, U.S.-based companies on the basis of their technology, products and services; their business plans and vision; and most of all on their potential for changing the wireless industry. The Fierce 15 companies were evaluated and selected by FierceWireless’ team of editors--Sue Marek, Mike Dano, and Phil Goldstein.
“FierceWireless editors meet and speak with hundreds of wireless companies every year, including a wide range of startups. Whenever we speak to new companies, we’re always thinking about whether they have the potential to be Fierce 15 winners,” said Phil Goldstein, Editor of FierceWireless. “These are the companies that are improving or reshaping the industry. Even though the U.S. wireless industry is maturing and consolidating, there is a still a great deal of innovation occurring.”
The “Fierce 15” is the longest-running feature of FierceWireless, and a number of companies that have been selected as winners in the past have gone on to become publicly traded companies or have had huge success as privately held firms. The awards celebrate the spirit of being "fierce"--championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition.
